Ok, to get a pic put in your WFO, go to:

http://www.villagephotos.com/

Make an account, login, and load up the photo you want. Then copy the link it gives you for the picture. Then login to Mz, go into the bit for editing your WFO, and add this code (replace photo name here with the address it gives you, obviously):

<IMG SRC=http://www.villagephotos.com/photonamehere.jpg>

Then you should have a picture in your WFO!

Hope that helps!

When a youth graduates (turns senior) do I have to order more youths or does another one come which takes his place?

When a youth turns senior, then another youth will come through when Saturday comes around.

When a player gets injured, what TIME does he heal?

(e.g Mr. X got injured on wednesday for 2 days, at 11am, what time will he be able to be picked on friday?

Hi All

I've visited the MZ website and looked around, but I'm not sure about something.

What's the catch? Another person in this thread said the game is free to play, and that sounds like it's too good to be true. What do I have to download to play the game on my PC?

Or do you just sign up for a team and start playing? What?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

That sounds great! But how do they pay for the website and service? How can they offer such a detailed game for free? I'm just curious. The whole arrangement does sound quite good.

im not sure how they keep it all going for free, maybe its from the money they get from the paying cups but thats a good question

guys?

Well the catch would be this:

You are right, the developers need the money. That's why they introduced a few popular functions: First it started with the cups. In the cups you play versus teams from other countries, and if you are succesful (get into the first 8 in the end), there are some prizes. Ofcourse, these cups aren't free to play, each costs an euro (now you can calculate, some 5000 people join a cup, that's 5000 euros).
The next function that was introduced were the friendly leagues, costing 1 euro (or equivalent) each. In friendly leagues you can play against your friends, or just get in to compete against managers from the whole world. Each costs 1 euro, and seeing as it's pretty popular, MZ earns alot of money through this.

Next, MZ crew invented the "challenge top clubs" where you can challenge the 8 top division clubs from each country and play against their A-team, 1 euro each match, then "World Allstars" challenge, 1 euro per match to play vs the World Allstars, and finally, the "Greatest players challenge", 1 to play vs one out of three best teams, managed by some well known managers.
As I saw, there are some 500 matches played a day, so that's 500 a day.

Next, and probably the function that brings the most money: Analyzer and ManagerZone Live. To sign up for them, you need to buy a package, starting costs 2.95 (better packages include some free cups, FL's, challenges etc.). The Analyzer and Live tools are made so that you can see your team actually play and correct their mistakes.
This is rather popular too, bringing quite some money in.

Finally, as some countries gained mobile paying access, ManagerZone added a 1 registration fee, taken directly from your mobile account (this is to prevent cheaters).

As you can see, ManagerZone clearly gets enough money to pay their server costs etc.

Oh, don't forget MZ Hockey is coming out in 2 days, meaning the income will probably double.

Another thing, MZ is free to register and play, period.
All the other things...duh, who needs them...if you've got money to pay for 'em, then do it, but you can clearly play and have a great team without paying for more functions (silly old me being the Swiss champion, Ash playing in English Premier League, and more).

I hope I helped you realise what a great game this is...welcome to the world of MZ
